Ocean Jasper is famous for its unpredictable color swirls and color patterns, particularly the many small orbs in its matrix, which appear as circles or eyes on cut sections. It is this dance of coloration that attracts collectors to this popular gemstone. Our Ocean Jasper features shades of blue teal, rust, and gold over soft cream and gray.

This colorway is a Babette: every skein and every batch is a bit different, but Babs has a method of recreating these artistic colorways. The photograph is an example of representative skeins from this colorway; the skein you receive may differ somewhat. If you have any questions about the color, please give us a call or email to ask for a photo - we are always happy to describe our current batch for you to make sure it meets your needs!

Katahdin 437

A lighter fingering weight than our Yummy 2-Ply, Katahdin 437 (formerly known as Northumbria Fingering - it is exactly the same yarn) is spun from the long, lustrous wool of Bluefaced Leicester sheep. BFL is a perfect canvas for Babs’ colors, giving the yarn a rich depth and slightly glossy finish. It's great for durable, fine-gauge socks, and lovely in crisp lacy shawlettes.
